  7. Order of Charity (Nishani Shefkat - Şefkat Nişanı)

    Below a first class star ... and another 1st Class Set ... This time the 1st Class Breast Star is with Paste Stones .... Below , probably a European Made 2nd Class order ... Original Ribbon but in a later - Not Original Case/box. Please be note that there is NO "Wreath and Star" or "only wreath" on the reverse of the order... Also you can see that the gold center ( where the Toughra Located ) is cambered ... Not flat as in the Ottoman made ones ....

    You are welcome Gordon ! Here is the picture of a 3rd class one ... ( No stones .. No diamonds ... No rubies ... Just green and red enamels ... ) Below is a 2nd Class Order ... Below a first class Star .
  11. Order of Charity (Nishani Shefkat - Şefkat Nişanı)

    Hello Gordon , It is a second class Sevkat order . 3rd class ones do not have any stones on them , you can see the Original box on the pictures but NOT correct ribbon . That incorrect ribbon is coming from a Big Imtiyaz Medal , nothing related with a Sevkat ... Best wishes , Avsar Ibar
  12. order of mejidje 3 class with swords and medals

    Chris , you mean the miniatures with swords on chain ? I never see ... ( on a chain ) but , in past i saw few miniature medjidies with swords , not on a chain , single ones ...
  13. order of mejidje 3 class with swords and medals

    Hello Chris , No exact info regarding the quantity . But over all they are quite rare . ( even to Turkish receipents and also to German Officers , if you compare with the other foreigners and Germans , you can find the posibility to find them to the Germans then others ... ) Thanks , Avsar
  14. Dear Friends , May i kindly ask you to examine the below St.Anna 2nd Class Made by " Morazov - IM " , i took the pictures from the wellknown beautiful website .. My question is , musnt be this order's arms " FLAT " as the classic black enamelled private made St. Annas ? But you can easily understand from the pictures here , they are not flat ... Thanks in advance for the opinions , Avsar
  15. Also , you can see the St.Anna in this picture , what i bealive , another example of the black St.Anna but NOT "absolutely flat" enamels ... Same as the Marazov made Black St.Anna in the medalirus page ....
  16. I submit a reply to your St.Stanislaus topic . best wishes , Avs
  17. St.Stanislas order

    Hello karakas , There are better knowledge guys then me about Russian orders here arround but in my opinion , the order , Luxory Type of St.Stan you pictured is original , i am not sure about the sabers ... Can you post a picture of the stamp on the loop , from the last picture seems to be something on the reverse loop ... D.O. even Carl Faberge made such kind of private made St.Stans ... Avs
  18. You have a very nice piece too . I will send you the pictures of my St. Anna tomorrow , it is in my office .
  19. The reason that i asked the question is , i also have the same style black enameled St.Anna in very , very good condition with original old - period hot black enamels ... Anyway , thanks ...
  20. Hello Gordon , That piece which you pictured is once up on a time ( better to say "was" ) a 5 th class original Ottoman Mint made Medjidie . but one of the most tired example i saw in my life ... Many things happened to it , it is nothing related with coro ... It is not German later made , it is Ottoman made one .... Then first it lost his crescent and star , his enamels are nearly all broken and then re-painted again ( not re-enamelled ) ... Meanwhile some body or the owner decide to add a pin to the back to hang it or use it as a brooch maybe ... They also cut the loop where the crescent and star connecting from it's silver body ... and so on ... best Wishes , Avsar Ibar
  21. osmanieh order with brilliants

    Dear Sirs , Those 2 orders Mr.Utopis posted , i do not know if they are from his collection or he wanted to buy them that is why he asked our opinions but what i have to say is ; It is NOT good for collectors and never gives a positive wish to collect , if we blame on all items ! UNLESS IT IS GUARANTEED FAKE ! As i mentioned the one with diamonds , it must be investigate better ... But all the Osmanie or Medjidie orders are NOT same , all the Makers ; Ottoman / French / British even Italians ( Italians Also made Medjidie Orders ... ) had different styles ... But i also still insist that the Osmanie Order with Sabers is an Original Sabered piece , btw , all the Swords added later , the matter is if they added in the period or today ... In that example which Utopis posted , The holes are NOT very big as the fake ones , swords looks OK , patina is Ok , dimensions are Ok and proportions of the swords are Ok !!! This is a GOOD PIECE . The holes maybe just a little big , but it is NOT a problem , we have to examine everything and make a complete calculation to decide the authenticity ... Regards , Avsar

    Hello Artan , I do NOT think that they are related with Turkish Orders and Medals ...
  23. osmanieh order with brilliants

    Hello , 1 - The one with the diamonds can be a foreign made piece , but I also DO NOT like the gold ( or golden ) border .. The front Center and the back looks good . Very hard to say without taking and examine it in hands .. Diamond Osmanie Orders are NOT related with Mr.Demir 's above pictures ... Diamond Osmanie's enamels , crescent , back and front MUST BE different from the regular Osmanie Orders ... You can NOT compare a Diamond Osmanie with a Regular Osmanie Order , in brief , diamond Osmanie's are not just the versions of a normal Osmanie Order with diamonds between the arms ... Below i am attaching a PERFECT ( Probably French Made ) ORIGINAL Example of a Diamond Grand Cross Osmanie Order . 2 - The Osmanie Breast Star Utopis posted , with the SABERS / SWORDS , is an ORIGINAL Piece . Regards , Avsar IBAR
  24. Order of Charity (Nishani Shefkat - Şefkat Nişanı)

    Hello , This order in the first pictures , i mean the one which was mentioned as " FIRST CLASS " is NOT a first class Sevkat Order's Breast Star , it is a 2nd Class Shevkat Order , for some reason , converted to seem like a Grand Cross Shevkat Breast Star . 1 - 1st Class ( Grand Cross ) Shevkat's Breast Star NEVER CAN BE in the size of 57 mm . 2 - In the Grand Cross Breast Star of Shevkat , The diamond inlaid rays between the star is made of SILVER . ( Except of the Special Type which is made only with Gold and diamonds , without the leaf and rubies ...) 3 - If you look carefully , you can see that the pin and it's holder on the back soldered latterly .. 4 - On this order , The pin's holder on the left back , i mean where the pin closing is a FICTION , it is something you can see in the new made brooches ... Ottoman Empire NEVER used such a kind of closing system on it's orders ... Best Wishes , Avsar IBAR
  25. Rosette from ribbon

    For this rosette , there is no way to understand if it is from the french Medal or it is from an Order Of Medjidie . Mr. Demir is absolutely right . As you can see in his pictures , there is no standardisation in the width of the Green stripes on Medjidie Orders , the only standardisation is "Red Ribbon with Green Stripes " . So if you see this rosette on Medjidie , it is from Medjidie , if it is on French Ordre Courage , it is from Ordre Pour Courage or it can be from a Royal Order of Cambodia
